How NOT to win an election
In the great state of Alaska (Governor S.Palin) another woman was attempting to get to DC to make a real difference.
Diane Benson, who stood against the pitbull with lipstick for the Governorship in 2006, attempted to become the Democratic congessional candidate for Alaska with the aim to clean up government.
You’d think as a Democrat she’d tie herself to the Obama bandwagon.
Diane had her own ideas of winning people over and illustrating her ‘experience.’
You may be surprised to discover that she didn’t win over Democrats to become their official candidate. In fact, she was defeated by a substantial margin - a clear 20 percentage points.
I wonder if you can you guess why?
